Wholewheat Cereals Give Soups Extra Energy Value By GAYNOR MADDOX • "Rationing has taught American wfcmen to adopt the custom of many other lands, of using hearty soups as the main course," says Mabel Stegner, recognized home economics expert, and co-author of "New Chinese Recipes for the American Family." By adding wholewheat cereals to main-dish soups, she explains, you get extra energy value, B vitamins, valuable minerals, and the cereal proteins present in generous amounts. This extra protein is especially valuable today as a supplement protein. yiss Stegner, whose testing laboratory ia well known, has prepared these two cereal-fortified soups especially for this column. Vegetable 1'otagn Onn quart beef bouillon (if desired, use bouillon cubes and water instead, or vegetable extract and water. Neither is rationed.), 2 tablespoons fat, >,i cup finely diced celery, 14 cup finely diced onion, 1 teaspoon mixed powdered herbs, 1 cup sliced carrots, 2 cups coarsely diced ray tomato, l & cup uncooked quick- cooking rolled oats, or 1 cup uncooked regular rolled.oats, 1 A bunch coarsely chopped watercress or 1 cup chopped young spinach leaves. Heat bouillon. Saute celery and onion in fat. Add with other vegetables to beef bouillon. Bring to boil, add rolled oats slowly, stirring constantly. Simmer, covered for about 20 minutes until vegetables are tender. Add watercress, heat for a few seconds and serve immediately. Beans Lyonnaise Is New, Different Try beans lyonnalse for something different from your Victory garden. String Bean* Lyonnaise (Serves Four-Five) One to two pounds string beans, 12 gteen onions, four tablespoons butter or fortified margarine, two tablespoons minced parsley, Vj cup boiling water, 3 ,4 teaspoon salt, \'» teaspoon dried thyme, basil or rosemary. "French" the string beans, cutting thorn quite thin. Wash the green onions, green tops as well as snowy stems, cut into lengths about the same as the string beans. Add the margarine or butter, water, salt and herbs. Simmer gently until beans and onions are tender, the water and fat cooked into them. Add parsley and serve. Note: Adding butter or margarine at the beginning of the cooking instead of in the usual manner after cooking gives you quite a different and unusually fine-flavored bean. Shell beans are in the market late in summer. The beans are fully developed in the pod. Frequently, both pods and beans are spotted with pink. Shell the beans before cooking and discard pods.

Mustard sauce with that "just right" flavor and tang Schilling WHAT DO YOU THINK? ^^••^•^^••••^••i* -(by BiiKMCK HAKKKUt. CHlPMANl When a book wins first prize in It te her competence that makes a novel contest, it is a matter oi conjecture what type o£ competition there was, what records the runners-up made. Sports editors inform their publics of the also- runs in sports events, but no one divulges to us what kind of manuscripts were considered in the annual Melro-Goldwyn-Mayer fiction award. Vv'e only know that the "winnah" was "Green Dolphin Street," by Elizabeth Goudge, and that she received the prize offered by Mr. Mayer, with true Hollywood exuberance, of $126.000 (compare with Nobel peace prizes and rewards for scientific discoveries which .seldom go beyond a modest $U5,000, If that), with the nJded distinction of having her 502-paged opus (closely printed) chosen as the September book of the month by the I.ltenu-y Guild. The basis of the choice in cither case, for the money nward, or fur the literary accolade, is difficult to assess, without the knowledge of what there was to chooso from. Which doesn't mean that "Green Dolphin Street" isn't good entertainment. It is—In spots—worth reading, if only for the descriptions of the Channel Islands, which the author^ made peculiarly her own in "Island Magic." Miss Goudge has a lush and flowery pen, and a Victorian style which, if saccharine and extravagant, in some way suits her Victorian characters and their Victorian circumstances. Best Part of Hook The early chapters of her story, laid in the little city of Saint Pierre on the largest of the islands, is by far the best and most entertaining part of the novel. Her children, the handsome William with the orange hair, and the two Le Patourel girls, are more real than the adults they become through the long, very long, years, more real and much more charming, as they climb the steep wind-swept cliffs, and run along the pebbly beach and breathe the fresh salt air and the fragrance o£ the flowers that mingle always with the smell of the sea. Guernsey, Jersey, and Sark have become, in a modern day, a tourist's delight and the seat of many a country estate, but in 1830 the French and English inhabitants lived a simple village life, pleasant and unhurried, punctuated by the arrival of the paquet boats which kept them in touch with the mainland, and which on one fateful day brought William Ozonne to Saint Pierre and into the lives of Marguerite and Marianne. These two heroines are thoroughly contrasted by Miss Goudge, protagonist^ of good and evil, one "much too bright and good for human nature's dally food," but with a joy in life and a light humor that saves her from being quite a prig and a bore, while her sister is cold and scheming, selfish, wilful—and completely competent.

Hinge of Plot That a plot shotild hinge on a mis-written word—that a man should spend all his innrried life with the wrong woman because of a slip of the pen, would seem a farfetched fictional expedient. Yet it could have happened in those days of Victorian repression, and in fact—according to a foreword by the author—did happen in actuality. When Miss Uouilge moves her William and Marianne to the New Zealand of the early colonial days, she is less successful in her background but then she admits she has never been in New Zealand. But as that land of one hundred years ago now lives only in history and legend, the writer's pen pictures as well as another's, that luxuriant, cruel, fertile country, raped by the whites from the Maoris, a land of hardy pioneers, of (loulitful character, of incredible hardships, and magnificent rewards. Bumbling William The author does well by her minor characters. Captain O'Hara, one-eyed Ned and Timothy Haslam, leave more vivid memories than does the bumbling William. That two women should have loved him with such intensity seems a bit incredible, but we are led to believe that his kind heart and his red hand are reason enough. But then authors even authors with a pulsating pen, are not constrained to explain why people lovp. Miss Ooudge had happier results in her much less pretentious novels. "The Middle Widow," the "Bird in the Tree,' 1 to nnme two among her large output. But "Green Dolphin Street" is the stuff Hint movies are made of, the perfect scenario, all the way from the picturesque town of St. Pierre with its ancient houses, its rock- enthroned monastery, its ancient customs and costumes, and its historic village fetes, to the back- country of the Maoris, torturing their victims in the New Zealand forests. We have here the clipper ships breasting the storms under full sail, and the new steamships that bring the exiles home after fifty years. Time marches on—if a bit slowly. And there is, throughout, detailed description of the modish costumes of Marianne from the age. of fifteen to sixty- eight—for she was a stylish one, was this little vixen, and dressed up even for the Maoris in the wilds, which you can see is as it should be for the cinema. Costume Picture So we can expect before long a costume picture in the best Hollywood manner, with full techni- color, "suggested" by the prize- winning novel of the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer contest—or else Mr. Mayer has thrown his money away. It should be a wonderful movie, and if the novel isn't quite a wonderful book, still it's readable and entertaining—now and then— and if there are no shadings and no subtleties, only black and white, good and evil, if good triumphs and love conquers all— still that's not now the hackneyed that it once was. The Victorians loved that motif, but it has been somewhat lost among our modern, hard-boiled, novelists, and it is rather a pleasure to meet it again—all dressed up in purple prose. Anyway you'll want to read It—just to be ready "for the greatest moving picture of all time, laid on the $125,000 prize novel 'Green Dolphin Street.' LYONS ROOT BEER © 1944 LYONS-MAGNUS. INC.
